PNAIRP 2015 Conference

“Impact and Outcomes:
Using Data for Meaningful Change”

November 4-6, 2015 - Portland, OR - Benson Hotel

The theme selected for our 36th Annual PNAIRP Conference is "Impact and Outcomes - Using Data for Meaningful Change." This year's conference will be held in the heart of downtown Portland at one of the city’s most treasured historic landmarks, the Benson Hotel, November 4-6, 2015!

The Benson Hotel is within walking distance to all of the shopping, dining, and entertainment of the Pearl District, Pioneer Square and downtown. Further, the boutiques, bookstores, breweries, and live performances that epitomize Portland culture are just steps away.

PNAIRP has set up a room block at the Benson for only $159 per night exclusively for our members. It is important you reserve your hotel room no later than Monday, October 5! The hotel block sold out last year so please do not delay.

This year's Theme: "Impact and Outcomes – Using Data for Meaningful Change"

Examples of topics could include the following, although we welcome proposals for presentations that address other aspects of using data to effect meaningful change:
